i think i have improved in chinese class through november till now, not only making my vocabulary more advance but also having a better understanding of reading and writing. Before entering the school I had a very bad ability to write or read but after joining CDNIS and experiencing the chinese classes I believe my skills improved. I have learned a lot of vocab that not only helps me to become more fluent in chinese but also allows me to have a conversation in chinese. In Criteria C and D we were tested on the content and language in which I’ve gotten a 4 in content and a 5 in language, I believe this is actually one of the best marks I’ve gotten throughout the year and I felt proud of myself, but of course there is always room for improvement. In Crit A we had to listen and visualize and for that summative I have gotten a 3.8, I believe that I didn’t try my best and could have done way better if I practiced and reviewed. All of the summatives were hard for me but if I were to try harder and push myself to my limit I think they would be a lot easier. I have many goals that I would want to complete before the end of the year, first being doing my homework. As chu lao shi said it is very important and can get you to improve both your chinese skills as well as your grade, I believe so too. But with my tight schedule and laziness I often do not do it, homework also improves responsibility skills which I lack so, doing my homework would benefit me a lot. Another goal of mine is to improve on both my reading and writing skills because it is one of the weakest skills I have, and if I improve in the two skills I think it will influence everything in my chinese. And the last goal I would want to achieve is to work a lot harder because, if I don’t work hard and challenge myself there will be no improvements, by achieving this goal I will practice my vocab, writing and reading daily as well as learn more new things. As Chu lao shi said my attitude in class has slightly changed and not in a good way, at the start of the year I believe I payed attention more and didn’t talk as much but after a few months went by I became a lot more distracted with talking. I really don’t want that to have an effect in my chinese as I really want to improve. In class I usually participate, ask questions and answer questions.
